Title says it all reallly. Since having kids I seem to wonder round the shops aimlessly like a lost soul.

Am 5ft9, size 14. Apple shaped.

Seen any outfits for me? Was wanting something that I can wear after the wedding to Christmas do's IYKWIM?

what do you like? are you after a dress or separates, have you shoes??

notyummy Tue 13-Oct-09 21:46:18


Where did you used to shop, and what did you like?

What kind of budget?

walkingonthemoon Tue 13-Oct-09 21:50:00

Be patient with me.....

Dress if poss, want to be a bit glam (as I live in jeans and need a bit of glam!

Have got black strappies, but would like to get a pair of shoes or boots at the same time?

Don't really want to spend more than £100 - less if poss!

On your marks, get set, go!!!

Green and blue are my colours by the way, have dyed red hair.

Very first shots - tell me what you think and it may help narrow it down...

walkingonthemoon Tue 13-Oct-09 21:59:44


The first is a bit busy printwise - I like something a little more understated I think?

Liking number 2 better but with it being nearly Nov may be a little cold (strappy!!!)


notyummy Tue 13-Oct-09 22:00:16

Also this: 0551&storeId=12557&categoryId=140433&parent_category_rn=140428&productId=1372426&langId=-1

and this: 0551&storeId=12557&categoryId=140433&parent_category_rn=140428&productId=1372418&langId=-1

...if you like blue.

Cheap too!

walkingonthemoon Tue 13-Oct-09 22:07:15

What do you think - too informal?

walkingonthemoon Tue 13-Oct-09 22:10:17

OOOOOOH - I like - but is it too fitted for me? Will have to try on, but live v near a John Lewis...

notyummy Tue 13-Oct-09 22:10:43

Nice - but wouln't say it's glam.

Perhaps nice to be a bit more dressy for a wedding?

(Without outshining the bride or looking like a hooker obviously.....)

This one a bit short?

walkingonthemoon Tue 13-Oct-09 22:10:46

So excited I forgot to link...

walkingonthemoon Tue 13-Oct-09 22:12:02

I bit short, and I Think I am best to be a little fitted in shape as I will look bigger than I am????

fishie Tue 13-Oct-09 22:12:44

yes it is a bit faded print but otherwise good. how about hearts desire

littleoldme Tue 13-Oct-09 22:13:11

Book a personal shopper at debenhams. i did that when I was in exactly sitaution and ened up with a fab outfit that I felt great in.

walkingonthemoon Tue 13-Oct-09 22:17:36


Don't wanna be rude but I am whacked. Finding it hard to concentrate.

Will check in tommorow after internet search during lunch hour.... thanks for pointers so far.....


fishie Tue 13-Oct-09 22:18:58

out of stock at jl but maybe at kew?

notyummy Tue 13-Oct-09 22:19:17

If this is the other one you were looking at above, then it looks v nice - hits the classy but glam factor bang on, i think.
